January 12 2020

The 2017 Kia Niro is an attractive, affordable small hybrid SUV. The Niro is a pleasant car to drive with comfortable seating, ample legroom, and flexible cargo space. It only comes as a hybrid model, supported by an onboard electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. Primarily, you have a smooth ride in the 2017 Kia Niro with there being no sounds of droning or stressing of the continuous variable transmission during acceleration that is often the case in other hybrid motors. The car has a six-speed, dual clutch automatic transmission and 195 lb-ft of torque, giving it a sporty-like refinement. The Niro’s full parallel hybrid system pairs an energy-dense lithium-ion battery, a lightweight electric motor, and a gasoline–direct engine, resulting in a high-efficient performance. The Niro is only available as a hybrid.

The affordable five-seat Niro

Included in the base price of the 2017 Kia Niro is an automatic transmission, remote keyless entry, rearview camera, seven airbags, cruise control, and Bluetooth hands –free phone connectivity. As well, there are audio controls on the steering wheel and a seven-inch display screen in the centre of the dashboard. As a five-door vehicle, the Niro is slotted below the Sportage as Kia's smallest SUV.

Features and Top fuel efficiency

In the quiet interior of the Niro, there is plenty of legroom as well as headroom in the back and front. Everything in the interior is well organized. The rear seatbacks fold down flat for expanding the cargo space, and as the cargo floor is bumper level high, it is easy to put in and take out heavy objects without straining yourself. Included in the luxury Touring model are heated and ventilated front leather seats, memory driver seat, rear-cross traffic alert, blind spot monitor, and rear-park assist. Premium audio, a sunroof, turn signals in the outside mirrors, and 18-inch wheels are also part of the trim. The 2017 Kia Niro FE gets 4.5L/100 km for city driving and 4.8L/100 km for highway driving.

Generous available safety highlights

Always anticipating and ready to automatically respond, the available Forward Collision Warning System gives audible and visual alerts when it detects a potential hazard in your path. With the available Autonomous Braking System, if a potential frontal collision is detected, the available autonomous emergency braking system automatically intervenes to provide immediate full braking assistance.

Parking assistance

The benefits of Park Assist uses sonar senses to help you stay informed when parking if you are near to objects or other vehicles. There is also a rearview camera for additional parking help, as well as available Lane Departure Assist.
